of the obama administration. the epa now has gained control over everything. see so to have been deemed a pollution, dangerous to the environment in co2 is of course that these plans. they attempt to surprise or two epitomize the anti-nature, enterprise spirit of this administration. the reason we need another supply-side revival of the same kind we had under ronald reagan. >> would you change anything you wrote in the original "wealth and poverty"? >> i would've changed quite a lot. there's all kinds of details that a changed. but i found that to try to change one thing would be to change everything. so you know, you get into the morass of editorial work. so instead of changing an essentially retained the old look and added 40,000 new words at the beginning and kind and revision of my monetary policy in the middle. it's a new book, but it contains the old book veered >> pennysaver bishop monetary policy, what do you mean by that? >> i failed to make clear in the original version of "wealth and poverty" that i believe can stable currencies. i don't believe including current these. i agr
affected five other countries and their ambassadors, the obama administration has offered a tepid response, calling it counterproductive. >> i want to remind you, on building settlements in jerusalem are in accordance with israeli law. if anyone wants to investigate further, they can go to the bush letter and see on the changes in the territory which the u.s. president spoke of. >> the white house is denying iran's claim of having captured a u.s. drone in iranian airspace. iran says that they captured a scaneagle aircraft conducting surveillance. speaking at the white house, press secretary jay carney rejected those claims. >> we have no evidence that the iranian claims you cite are true. i would refer you to the pentagon's comments this morning on the details of this particular type of uav, but again, we have no evidence that those claims are true. >> protests are continuing in mexico in the aftermath of clashes between police and citizens after it the inauguration of president and ricky pena nieto. activists have accused mexican police of using infiltrators to carry out vandalism and oth
impact. >> getner says the obama administration is only too willing to go over the qulif. cliff. do they mean marginal rates, or just rates. >> that's what's going to be worked out, the last minute deal that's where you find wiggle room. >> i guarantee you there's guys in boehner's camp that are ready to go over, too. >> but he's been moving to marginalize those peel. this is his way of taking control of the party. >> the question is why do they care where the money comes from. if you have a revenue target, then fine. but we need $800 million in revenue. john wehner figured it out. and boehner can turn around and say i need $6 trillion in titlement cuts. and they can each take each other's playbook and try and figure out what they would like best to -- figure out the number and figure out how to get there. >> i don't know. both sides seem to be only too willing to do it. they're in the booking rove on fox because of that fiasco. which made good tv, but apparent apparently, i don't know, but he says republicans will get the blame for going off the cliff, but the president will be wea
. the obama administration wants to send a clear message that while it supports syria's coalition opposition, to lead syria's democratic transition when the assad regime falls, there is no place for extremism in the country's future. so you see these parallel actions. recognizing the opposition formally but at the same time labeling certain parts of it as, you know, terrorists. so that's an important distinction there. and all eyes are glued to whether chemical weapons will be used or not. >> as you can allude to, they're opening the door for that possibility down the road. but responsibly. >> and we should point out that the full interview with president obama and the first lady will air on friday on "20/20" and "nightline." a cool tradition that barbara gets to sit down in the white house during the holidays and talk to both. certainly no shortage of topics as 2012 winds down. >> but yet the platform is not like she gets extended time for it. "20/20" is still the same amount of time, even though topics are -- >> we'll be back. stay with us. >>> well, this is big. there's a potential breakt
administration, but you were most recently president, one of of president obama's principal surrogates in spanish-language media. what did the election look like from your point of view, you know, what can you tell us about that we didn't read in the newspaper, and, you know, from your personal experience, tell us what happened. >> i think the way to understand kind of my role as a surrogate this year is in juxtaposition to four years ago. i basically played the same role in '08 and '12 in terms of outreach to spanish-language media on behalf of the president and then-candidate. and the fascinating thing for me as i emerged from government and went out, back into campaign land was the proliferation of spanish-language media outlets. in 2008 spanish-language media essentially meant national spanish-language media which was two, univision and telemundo. a little bit of cnn in espanol. and local media in south florida. and that's pretty much the sum total of what, of the outlets that i hit over and over and over and over again four years ago. this time i ended up doing media in, again, the national,
during the end of that administration. we'll likely see an impulse for the same with the obama administration and iran. and that means congress will have to push very hard to see that human rights and democracy and the promotion of those principles in iran is and that agenda foremost on that agenda and with the help of f.d.d., we'll do that. and to that very issue, congratulations on your human rights panel this morning. congratulations on all you do and one more time i want to tell you, the intellectual information, the data that you provide is absolutely essential. i thank you for that. and i think at that point, we'll take some questions, won't we? thank you, toby. [applause] >> congressman royce. it is clear to all of us why you have been entrusted with the very important gavel of chairing the house foreign affairs committee following the able leadership of chairman laint. we are on a tighter schedule and i'm going to call up senator casey but i recognize the presence here today of lieutenant colonel larry ger lock. he was the commander of an amphibious unit. he drove two t
's not seeking a job in the obama administration. fink has been rumored as a potential candidate to replace timothy geithner. he says he wishes the media would believe he doesn't want the job and plans to stay at blackwell as long as the board wants him. >>> negotiations have reached a deal to end the eight-day strike of the ports of los angeles and long beach. striking clerical workers and longshoremen who refuse to cross picket lines will be back on the job later. shippers and the union agreed to federal mediation on tuesday. the clerks have been working without a contract for two years. the strike shut down ten of the port's 14 terminals, backing up several ships waiting to off load their cargo. >>> still to come, egyptian president morsi has returned to work just a short time ago after leaving the palace during protests last night. we'll have the very latest from cairo when we come back. can i help you? i heard you guys can ship ground for less than the ups store. that's right. i've learned the only way to get a holiday deal is to camp out. you know we've been open all night. is this a
health care law which is big part of that. the obama administration says the fee is only temporary. they believe that costs overall will lower, over time and then they will be able to phase that out in 2017, unless congress decides to extend the fee if those cost savings don't seem to materialize. if history is any guide congress almost never finds parting with new taxes very easy. several large companies will end up paying tens of millions of dollars in the fee. maybe a few hundred dollars for the small firms. most will get passed on to workers. it is a tax increase no matter how you look at it really. [shouting] gregg: well there you see it. this is brand new videotape from lansing, michigan, moments ago. you have thousands of union protesters angry over a new law about to be passed by the legislature there. this is the rotunda inside. and the governor is going to sign it, which will turn michigan into a right-to-work state. now supporters of right to work say this is going to attract businesses. it is going to encourage investment. it will allow workers to choose whether they wa
declared a terrorist organization by the obama administration. it's a fierce group of fighters waging a deadly battle against bashar al assad. cnn's arwa damon who has spent time in syria reports that other rebels don't agree with al nusra's politics but admire the group's determination to get rid of the assad regime. >> potential threat of a chemical weapons attack by the syrian regime forces nato to rely on rebels who may or may not be trustworthy to secure these stockpiles. brian todd looks into this part of the story. >> reporter: there's enough chaos afoot to alarm western officials about what may happen to the munitions. a senior u.s. official and top diplomat tell cnn, the u.s. and its allies are using defense contractors to train syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles. our sources say the training is taking place in jordan and it,ky. they tell us the syrian rebels are being trained on how to monitor and secure stockpiles but also on handling the weapons sites and weapons materials. >> how dicy is it to train syrian rebels on actually handling the materials?
are worried about. there is all this talk whether the obama administration will crackdown on colorado and washington, and not let them do it. >> no. >> cenk: how do you think that will play out. >> first of all he doesn't have to worry about an election. obama has tipped his hand when he legalized the gay marriage. so all he has to do is reschedule pot from scheduled one to schedule two then it becomes a medical issue and then the states can decide themselves if they want it legal or not. >> cenk: tommy, he broke records on drug dispensary raids his first term. he appointed the bush appointee the head of the dea. >> he's also a black guy from hawai'i who used to surf. >> cenk: most importantly, he used to smoke. >> that's what i'm saying into that's what drives me crazy. at least the last three presidents smoked marijuana. they didn't serve any jail time. they became president of the united states. and you served nine months. >> not only a pot smoker, but cocaine user, george bush. >> cenk: yes. >> the hypocrisy are bedfellows. >> cenk: i heard you took the plea deal to spare your son
was eager to go into iraq. these days, the last thing the obama administration wants to do is go into iraq. in terms of will syria actually use them? i don't think we have any idea. what we do know, is they're not useful militarily. they're helpful in an negotiation, about getting them out. it's hard to see how they advance his cause. >> assad would face complete obliteration if he does this. and some say he wants asylum in venezuela or whatever. he's not a stupid man. why would he risk the wrath of the world ascending on him? >> it's hard to see how this advances his cause, except as part of the negotiation. if you're trying to get a better deal for your family, then, maybe it's useful. >> would this create an internal coup, with his background? i don't know how sane he is or not, and what he's done. he's killing his own people. he's butchering his own people. when do the colonels come after him, to use a latin phrase? >> i don't think that happens. if anything, i think assad may be a prisoner of his security establishment. i don't think he will be pushed aside by his aides. >> when do th
for intervention. >timothy geithner is says the obama administration is prepared to see the u.s. go over the limit fiscal cliff rather than cave to republican demands for a continued tax break for the wealthiest americans. he made the statement in an interview with cnbc. >> i want to understand the administration's position on raising taxes for the wealthy, those making more than $250,000. if republicans and not agree to that, is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff? >> absolutely. there is no room for an agreement that the not involve the rates going up for the top 2%. >> speaking to a roundtable of corporate executives in washington, president obama said republicans' aid to examine the reality that tax rates will rise for the wealthiest americans. >> we have seen some movement in the last several days with some republicans. there has been a recognition that, maybe, they can accept some rate increases as long as is combined with a serious impediment reform and additional spending cuts. and if we can get the leadership on the republican side to take that kramer, to acknowledge t
construction in california and the obama administration's high-speed rail program. transportation secretary ray la hood testifies about the $10 billion already spent with the goal of providing 80% of americans with access to high-speed rail within 25 years. this is just over three hours. >> good morning. like to call this hearing to order. today is another one of our hearings and focused on passenger rail in the united states, and this is an oversight hearing, which we conduct at the full committee level. pleased to welcome everyone to this hearing, and this opportunity to review the progress of high-speed rail in particular today, and the title of the hearing is, an update on the high-speed rail and inner city passenger rail program, mistakes made and lessons learned is the title. the order of business is we're going to hear members' opening statements from the committee. then our first panel will actually be two members who we'll welcome and hear their commentary, both of them from kaz, -- from california, leaders in the congress, we're pleased to welcome. and then we'll have the secretary in
to be even more repressive. likewise, the obama administration, with the president's reelection, faces an interesting set of questions about how best to continue on the strategy of trying to prevent the iranian nuclear program from arriving at the point where they are able to produce a weapon. and how you tighten anti- proliferation policy with a human rights policy is an issue that is often -- has often been difficult for policy-makers to reconcile. why don't i quickly opened it up? maybe i will start with marina since your experience is so personal and maybe ask you, and a basic level, whether you think life for ordinary iranians has gotten better or worse in the last few years. give us your best sense of what the human rights landscape looks like today verses say five years ago or a decade ago. >> i guess this all depends on how much people know hear about the absolute disregard for human rights in iran. i don't know how much you know about it in 1979, when the revolution succeeded, we had hoped that the promise of freedom and democracy, we had hoped iran would become a democracy bu
responsibility here because after the overthrow of gaddafhi, the obama administration, britain, france just turned away from the problem, and so now we have this potential anarchic situation where the terrorists can take root. >> greta: so now what? what do we do? >> at this point trying to find ways to strengthen, i use this term loosely, the government of libya is very important because if we sees somalia this time on the southern coast of the mediterranean, it's very clear that europe will be vulnerable and indeed we will be worldwide, so it seems to me this is something that we should be involved in, but our friends in europe really have a lot at stake here, too. >> ambassador, we want to also ask you tonight about former vice-president dick cheney's latest remarks. now, last night he blasted president obama's foreign policy in the middle east. here's what he said in part. >> i think certainly in my conversations with many of those people, they no longer believe us. they no longer trust us. they no longer believe they can count on the united states of america to do what we did 20 years
, you should be taxed when you make them. the obama administration had a pretty good proposal to crack down on this stuff back in 2009. never went any place. and that's not surprising given how much money is raised from google. >> what i would say is it is their fiduciary duty to pay a low tax rate. that's what the law says. that's what they have to do. i believe that's what they are doing in this case. >> you know, they talked in the past in washington about a moratorium of some kind to allow companies to repatuate the funds they have overseas. would that satisfy what you're talking about here? >> no -- we need real systemic reform. fiduciary responsibility. google has a brand as one of the good guys. if irt starts to tarnish that brand, that's bad for shareholders long-term. and i think this tarnishes its brand. >> what if we saw a lowering -- it's not on the table obviously. but in theory land, what if we saw a lowering of the corporate tax rate? would that bring an end to this? >> i don't know if it's necessarily a lowering of the actual rate. what is called for is simplifying the
, is there anything that this government should do-- or any government, whether it's the obama administration or some future administration-- ought to do in terms of u.s. companies being more competitive internationally or? or do you want them to stand out of the way snrjts look, i think they can be -- i don't think we need the same levels of investment support that even germany and japan have. but the fact that secretary clinton has been very pro business, that the state department opens up doors, that the president publicly says i want to double exports, that the u.s. is very aggressive in trying to do that, i think attitude helps us all. it's really a -- you know, when chancellor merkel flies from berlin to beijing, 20 c.e.o.s get off right behind her and they've got their hands out, right? and they're saying "give me more business." and we don't need to do it exactly that way but we need the administration, every administration, to be out there selling with us as we go around the world. look, for every job that we have in export there is's another eight in the supply chain. every small and medium
that the europeans involved in this process all along, and the timing, the obama administration's call with the external pressure, constantly hovering out there, the talk about a red line. when is the united states going to get serious about the second track? i am one of these people who believe there is an agreement out there that can be reached, and that would lead delay on nuclear-weapons iran. but i think the diplomacy has to be stepped up. jack's point about a republican conservative able to achieve agreement of this sort that are more difficult for a democrat is a very important one. no matter what kind of agreement if there is an agreement reached with iran, it is going to be attacked by a lot of constituents but many of them are republicans. >> i could give examples when a democratic president reach major agreements. >> regarding iran, in any situation, you have windows of opportunity. there are other times when the personalities make it simply impossible. we should not have negotiated with hitler. it would not have helped in the 1930s. the thing is as far as iran is concerned,
on the obama administration if the economy doesn't recover. >> all right. many thanks, scott rasmussen, appreciate it very much. >> thanks. >>> with just 26 days until we fall off the tax and fiscal cliff, two dozen house republicans have apparently defected from the boehner plan and signed a bipartisan letter with democrats. people are now asking is there a fallback position for the gop? well, here now to tell us is house majority whip california republican kevin mccarthy, the number three man. mr. mccarthy, as always, thank you for coming back on the show. can i get your comment on this letter, two dozen republicans, they're talking about tax rate flexibility along with a bunch of democrats. what's your take, sir? >> well, remember what they're saying here. what they're saying is that they're going to put everything on to the table. what we've been talking about for so long is where the president has been awol, this is a spending issue that we have a real problem with. we agree that we'll provide revenue, but we do not want to hurt a pro growth economy here. so it's how you go about
during the end of that administration. we will likely see an impulse, the same with the obama administration. that means congress will have to push very hard to see human rights and democracy and promotion of those principles in iran is on that agenda, for most on that agenda and with the help of ftd, will do that. to that very issue, congratulations on your human-rights panel this morning. congratulations on all you do. the intellectual information, the data that you find is essentials. i thank you for that. i think at that point we will take some questions. [applause] >> thank you so much. it is clear to all of us why you have been entrusted with this very important gavel chairing the foreign affairs committee following a leadership of chairman clinton. we are in a tight schedule and 5 like to call up senator kc. i would be remiss if i did not recognize the presence here today of lieutenant-colonel larry lerlach. he was commander of an amphibious unit in lebanon. in october of 1983 hezbollah terrorists drove two trucks and exploded the american and french marine barracks. he
of the past. look back. obama -- many people were saying he did not deserve the nobel peace prize, but he deserved it because it was a statement that now the u.s. is shifting back from the bush administration to obama. i think the same is true for the european union. >> your assessment has been pretty upbeat so far. i want to put this to you. at the top of the show, we said this is a day of celebration for the eu. no doubt about that. it also indicates it might be a day of celebration for the people of the eu, but i see no signs of those citizens cracky -- cracking open the champagne bottles today. >> it is unfortunate. we should see youngsters out there. we should see the you celebrating. i agree that it is unfortunate that we are not even able to celebrate what we have been living and experiencing for 60 years, which is prosperity and peace for everybody. i can berkeley understand that the current crisis destroys this -- i can understand that the current crisis destroys this. looking back, my family, many other families -- people had nothing to eat. they were freezing in the cold. just
's what we know right now. we have just 20 days left for the obama administration and house speaker boehner's office to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff. while talks continue privately between both, no public details of progression toward the compromise have been released. in the last hour, our guest, tony fratto who is the former press secretary and jerry bernstein agreed that we would likely get some sort of a deal, just perhaps not in a form that was widely expected. joining us right now is the first of many lawmakers we'll be speaking with today, texas congressman jeb hensarling who is also the incoming chairman of the house financial services committee. and mr. chairman, first of all, congratulations. >> thank you. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for being with us today. >> happy to do it. >> we hear all of this talk, we hear all the talk that's been leading up to this point. we know it's gone a little quieter at this point. maybe that's a good thing. i also know you've been pretty firm about this. you've said that elections do have consequences. the president is getting
this thing ever bigger, passing 6000 regulations with the obama administration -- maybe that does not lead to you being served better in your community. and i would like to talk you about how we can make it simpler and better for you. greg: mary katharine ham and juan williams. thank you both so much. [talking over each other] greg: i would like to put them in charge. jenna: we will see what happens next. in the meantime, we are turning to some crime headlines. a man is terrorizing a store clerk and police are on the hunt for who this guy is. plus, protests raging in egypt again today. supporters and how it may impact a political crisis there. he will dueling protests are rocking egypt. thousands of supporters taking on opponents. the opposition is taking on a sit in there. aaron david miller is a former advisor to the secretary of the state. what does an unstable egypt mean for us? >> it means a disaster, frankly. egypt is the largest and most powerful, most populous with the peace treaty of israel. they control access to the suez canal. what you're going to have is the beginning of a ver
that were enacted by the bush administration and were increased by the obama administration. the report is not political in any way shape or form. it endorses things that are supported by the right in some cases and that are supported by people on the left. you cannot just take the parts that you like. you have to take the holistic approach, to maximize u.s. production and to reduce consumption partly by diversifying our transportation sector away from petroleum. the last thing i will say is that petroleum use in transportation is the pivot point of this entire problem. 70% of our use of petroleum in this country is for transportation. transportation is fueled about 93% of the time by petroleum. if you want to reduce the united states' dependence on imported petroleum and the related geopolitical issues, particularly in an issue when rising demand is creating a potential conflict for these resources, then you have to recognize transportation has to be diversified away from petroleum or the prices are set on the world market. canada and norway have been net petroleum exporters but they p
a high-risk test like this with so many eyes watching? bill: you mentioned the obama administration. how are they reacting? was is our response? >> our response tends to look first to the yate united nation. there is talk of proportional sanctions being considered at the security council should north korea test. but it's clear that is not going to change the trajectory of north korea's per suit of a nuclear program. bill: steven yates, thank you. we are watching this, sometime we believe in the coming days to 10 days. here's martha. martha: $120 million to develop the next electric car battery. it's not an independent venture. you are paying for it. the u.s. taxpayer. we'll tell you about the government's latest gamble with your money. bill: one man' home survived superstorm sandy. but it did not make it through the recovery. >> the township didn't know what happened. i called the governor' office and she said to me, are you sure your house is gone? i said, miss, you miss place a pen or pencil, you don't miss place a house. ♪ i wish my patits could see what i see. ♪ that over time, h
. the worsening of the position was confirmed today that the obama's administration, warnings. >> we are remain concerned as the opposition advances on damascus that the regime might very well consider the use of chemical weapons. the assad regime ought to not make the mistake thinking somehow it can use chemical weapons on their own people and get away with that. there will be consequences. >> western diplomats will be gathering in morocco. megynmegyn: james, thank you. the president warned that if syria does use chemical weapons that country would be crossing a red line. if they cross that line, what does our threat mean? air strikes? u.s. troops on the ground in syria? we'll speak with two experienced commanders about what a response would look like from the united states and the challenges ahead. >> there are discussions going on now but i want to tell everybody here. i'm happy. i have had a number of republicans come to me and a few democrats. we are going to change the rules. we cannot continue in this way. i hope we can get something that the republicans will work with us on. about it wo
those weapons against us or also our ally israel? >> well i think, jenna, what the obama administration wants to do right now is sort of get through this very turbulent period at the moment. so you will not see a change in this aid right now. i think what they want to see is how the military behaves, for example during this referendum? how do they behave of at referendum. jenna: what do you think the behavior will be? >> what the concern is looks like morsi is trying to ram the constitution through. this is islamist in its character and concentrates hands in the power of the president. you see opposition may be boycotting referendum on saturday. will the military for example, crack down on the opposition and help this constitution get through in sort of undemocratic way? i think that would raise real concerns about their independence from this, from the muslim brotherhood and from president morsi. jenna: that is interesting point because we remember watching the military with the overthrow eventually of mubarak and how their role shifted during those protests and how it could be seen as
it is not tied to performance. stuart: is it possible for the obama administration to stop the trend or get in the way of it or block it in some way? you're former chairman of the national labor relations board. as i understand it, the president is stacking that national labor relations board with people on the left. would they be in a position to stop this right to work trend? >> no, they would not. the statute specifically gives the states the right to pass a right to work law. and i can't think of anything that members of the board could do to stop that. there was a little bit of an effort to do that with regard to boeing. but that was indirect and not direct. i don't think it would have been effective anyway. stuart: right, if i'm right, and i believe i am, that the prrsident is stacking the nlrb, what can they do, what do you expect them to do in this second term to enhance the union movement? >> you know, a variety of different things they can do. they can grant access to union agents to an employer's premises after a petition is filed. they could reverse existing board law and give e
believe that the current obama administration is willing to provide that kind of support? >> no. that is why i wrote this book. it is about what happens if you do not do the right kind of things to support democracy. quite frankly, we are not doing enough with the right kind of things. dagen: it is a novel? >> it is a novel. this is about and administration that does not do the right things just as we are not doing the right things now. oliver north.com. i will leave yours. connell: thank you very much. good luck, by the way. there it is. we will have more on this fox business exclusive report. it is a record year for anti-trust funds against businesses. dagen: airline flight attendant also have their say. some of the most annoying things that passengers do on airplanes. we also tell them to suck it up because that is their job. more on the winners from the s&p today. ♪ [ male announcer ] the markets keep moving. make sure the news keeps coming witinkorswim by td ameritrade. use the news links breaking stories ith possible breakout stocks, options with potenti opportunity, fut
years the obama administration, in really a bipartisan spirit, has sought to step up our game in the asia-pacific region, to increase our diplomatic, our commercial, our strategic and our political interactions really across the board. and when we think about it -- it's been termed either the pivot or rebalancing -- a key component of that is frankly our desire to improve and increase our interactions and our relationship with china. we all recognize its importance on the global stage. and frankly, the region and the world demands that the united states and china make an extraordinary effort to make sure that our relationship is strong and stable and predictable. you referred to this long history of what are often referred to as hegemonic transitions. one of the things i would say is that the leadership on both sides has the benefit of that history, to look at missteps that have been taken in the past. and there is a very clear determination on both sides to ensure that where we compete, we compete peacefully and that we seek always to step up areas of cooperation as we go for

not successfully negotiated a single new trade agreement during the first four years of the obama administration. and this administration has not yet asked congress for a renewal of trade promotion authority despite the fact that that t.p.a. expired over five years ago. the cost of inaction on trade is high because today we live in a global economy where american producers rely on access to foreign markets. more than 95% of global consumers live outside the united states. consider that in 1960 exports accounted for only 3.6% of u.s. g.d.p. today exports account for 12.5% of our g.d.p. exports of u.s. goods and services support over 10 million american jobs. if we do not aggressively pursue new market opening agreements on behalf of american workers, we will see new export opportunities go to foreign businesses and foreign workers. so while i'm pleased that we're considering pntr today, i hope that president obama in his second term will recognize the potential for increased trade opportunities through a more aggressive trade agenda. i look forward to the president signing this legislation into l
legislation supported by industry, the obama administration and t.s.a. that has the potential to enhance the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of screening baggage. with that, madam speaker, i urge my colleagues to support s. 3542 so it can be sent to the president for his signature and yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from new york. mr. king: i urge adoption of this bipartisan, commonsense bill, and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the question is will the house suspend the rules and pass senate bill 3542. those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, 2/3 having responded in the affirmative, the rules are suspended, the bill is passed, and without objection the motion to reconsider is laid on the table. for what purpose does the gentleman from new york seek rick anything? -- seek recognition? mr. king: i ask unanimous consent that the house suspend the rules and pass senate 1998. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of
's right. house republicans say there will be no deal if tax ritz go up and the obama administration says it's ready to go thelma and louise style over the cliff on january 1. if that's the case, wendell goler live at the white house with what we know is going on behind the scenes. anything happening? >> steve, the president and house speaker john boehner talked on the phone yesterday, but they agreed not to characterize their conversation. so it's unclear how much progress they made. from the outside, it does seem they've moved a bit closer with boehner now agreeing to raise tax collection from the wealthy, though not by raising tax rates. >> we've got to cut spending and i believe to put revenues on the table. the revenues we're putting on the table will come from, guess who, the rich! there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes, and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> the president lobbied big business leaders yesterday with an appearance at the business round table. his aide

is how are we going to do it? and the obama administration almost like a character from "seinfeld" said we are going to do this out of spite and said we are going to have to raise the rates rather than do this loophole closing thing and all of the rest. the problem with that is that presidents get very few do officer, one ever the few that they get is right after an election they can change the tone, they can sort of start over and instead of doing that and trying to figure out how to fulfill this promise that obama has always made about being bipartisan he's decided just to sort of do the same thing he did with the stimulus, which is to try to steam roll the republicans, to crush them, to placate his base, and it has the potential to create another four years of partisan whommer and tong fighting in washington. jon: i wanted to get your reaction to what the treasury secretary had to say in that report from mike emanuel a minute ago. he was asked flat out is the white house ready to go over the fiscal cliff and boom he says, absolutely, as if that is a good thing. i mean there are defen
, that it is unlawful discrimination. the obama administration agrees that this law is unconstitutional. it's now being defended by a lawyer hired by the house of representatives, and the case about is the defense of marriage act constitutional, that is one. there are several different cases raising that issue that the justices are probably going to decide whether to hear today. >> california's prop 8, what would that entail? >> propositional is a very different case because that's really a more fundamental case that potentially could apply in every state of the union. basically that question is does the constitution require that everyone, gay or straight, has the right to get married, and what makes the proposition 8 case potentially so earth-shaking in its politics is that it might not apply only in california. it might apply in the 40 plus states that don't have same-sex marriage. it could essentially bring same-sex marriage to the whole country. that's a very different, much broader issue than the defense of marriage act. >> and, jeffrey, explain to us, what is the difference if you are a gay coupl

to be a think the obama administration's call, especially with the external pressure the israelis constantly hovering out there and that yahoo!'s talk about a red line is when is the united states going to get really serious about the second track? i am one of these people who believes there is an agreement out there that can be reached that would lead to a nonnuclear weapon iran. but i think the diplomacy has to be set. jack's final point about a republican conservative able to achieve agreements of this sort that are more difficult for a democrat is a very important one. no matter what kind of agreement, if there is an agreement reached with iran, it's going to be attacked by a lot of constituencies. but many of them are going to be republican. >> and he gave you many examples were a democratic president has reached major agreements. jack. >> regarding iran, i think in any situation you have windows of opportunity possibly. there are other times with the personalities make it simply impossible. we should not have negotiated. it wouldn't have helped in the 1930s. but the thing is as far as
